6:46 pm
chilly. temperatures around 60 degrees by 8:00 tonight around the bay and inland and chillier than that by the coastline but tomorrow dawns sunny and bright and temperatures climb into the low 80s around livermore and concord, walnut creek, into the south bay too like los gatos warm tomorrow, too. nights day for the cherry blossom festival this weekend in japantown. it will be sunny, breezy and 62 degrees tomorrow. high surf is up for tomorrow with warnings for a northwesterly swell up to 15 feet. pretty big so sneaker waves are a possibility. so be careful if you are taking the kids to the beach tomorrow. high pressure offshore gives us a nice sunday and a good monday. so we'll warm up for tomorrow but then low pressure off the pacific northwest begins to sink a little south and that will bring a chance of rain to northern california and showers for the bay area. it won't amount to much. what you will notice is the temperatures are way down only in the low 60s on tuesday. that's a big change from what we have seen lately.
6:47 pm

6:48 pm
sunny the next couple of days and increasing clouds with light rain late monday night and showers into tuesday morning. wednesday and thursday sunny and then another system coming into on friday again not much. but it looks like the streets will get wet late monday and on friday, as well. that's weather. back to you to elizabeth. we have andrea nakano has sports. a big day for oakland even involving a little dessert. >> a little bit. the a's win and revenge is sweet when it comes to delivering the pie. plus billy crystal there to root on the clippers but for the warriors no andrew bogut and tons of foul trouble. could the warriors still beat the clippers in l.a.? next in sports. ,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:51 pm
welcome back. >> andrea, how are you? [ laughter ] [overlapping speakers] >> we have lots of things going on. let's talk about sports. with andrew bogut out with an injury the warriors were already shorthanded then today foul trouble happened cuffed -- handcuffed the dubs with andre iguodala fouling out of the game in the 4th quarter. luckily both sides were in trouble with a combined 51 personal fouls in the game. blake griffin played only 19 minutes and he fouled out in the 4th quarter. it was a disastrous start for the warriors. deandre jordan, dunk. 12-1 clippers early on. warriors claw back. steph curry finger roll and then why get so close to the hoop when he can fire from long lange? a 3 in transition. next possession game tied at 52 at the half. steph with only 14 points in the game. warriors up by 6 late in the 3rd. huge block by green and great
6:52 pm
passing to close the quarter. jermaine o'neal with the finish. the dubs up 8 headed into the fourth. klay thompson hit four three- pointers, this one with 7 minutes left to put the warriors up by 10. thompson led the way with 22 points. but there was way too much time left on the clock. the clippers got back into it. two threes down the stretch this one to tie the game. warriors down one. curry drives and turns it over. 21 turnsovers for golden state. blocked by barnes, the black falcon hits three. warriors up by 2. after the clippers tie it up curry under 30 u left, chance to take the lead but he misses. dre mon green with the rebound and he fouls. green goes to the line to give the warriors the lead. hit two clutch free throws and the ws hang on to beat the clippers 109-105.
6:53 pm
>> survey says we're not supposed to be here. i'm not supposed to be coaching. got no experience. steph curry is supposed to be retired because of, you know, his ankle. david lee was a loser. jermaine o'neal supposed to be finished. harrison barnes, uhm, dropped in the draft. it's the makeup of this basketball team and i can continue to go on and on throughout my roster. it's just a bunch of guys that just compete and fight. >> will they call a foul? yes, they called a foul. and griffin is fouled out! >> you think the game was really too closely officiated? >> did you want me to get fined ? why would you ask that question? come on. yeah, i do. i thought it was a lot of tight touch fouls. i thought blake of his six three of them were probably touch fouls. you know, the way i look at it is both teams had to play under the same rules. you know? and they did a better job playing under the same rules we had to play under. >> it looked like you dumped a full cup of water on a golden state fan. were you aware of that?
6:54 pm
>> i heard them say something. i didn't know what i did. it wasn't full. i was rinsing after my mouthpiece came out. if i did, i apologize. water, you know. larry bird can't be happy with his indiana pacers. the number one team in the east was embarrassed on their home floor by the atlanta hawks. jeff had a game-high 28 points. atlanta beats indiana 101-93. paul pierce and the nets accused of tanking at the end of the season so they could go to toronto and face the raptors in round one for an easier matchup. after one game, the strategy may have worked. pierce in a first year with brooklyn has done this many times in his career, 15 points nets take game one over the
6:55 pm
raptors 94-87. the giants can't seem to help their pitchers with run support. same with the a's this afternoon. they stranded 12 runners and left the bases loaded in the six three-pointers but they made the most of the last inning. a's down two in the ninth to the astros in game 2 of their series with one swing of the bat jed lowrie lines one off the right field wall to make it a one run game his second of the year. the hit keeps on coming. up the middle scoring josh donaldson game tied at 3. and then josh reddick sends the 33,000-plus in attendance home. he rips one into the gap for the walkoff hit. the a's score three in the ninth to come back and win it 4- 3. usually this time he is on the receiving end of the pie. another three hits for him as he looks to break out of his slump. the sharks look to continue to beat l.a. trend and take a 2-0 series lead against the kings.
6:56 pm
the puck drops at 7 p.m. tomorrow night at the s.a.p. center before the series returns to l.a. things got nasty in st. louis when chicago's brent seabrook elbowed david baas in the head. seabrook was thrown out in. in overtime barrett-jackson scored on the slapshot through traffic. the blues beat the blackhawks 4- 3 in overtime and lead the series 2-0 games. and the stanley cup play- offs seemed to bring out the nasty in everybody. last night, look at the blatant low blow to detroit's danny dekaiser. brian would you say ouch on that one? >> no. >> referees missed the call and today he was only give a $5,000 fine. but the hockey gods evened it out. detroit won game one. 1-0. >> wow. >> that would hurt. >> really? >> i mean, that would. >> they have padding, right? >> i don't know, do they? [ laughter ] >> i'm guessing they wear some sort of protective gear but you
6:57 pm
